Though Patrick's body accepts his new heart, his old life seems to reject him. Bored by the things that once enticed him, he begins to look for meaning in his experience. Discovering that his donor was a local boy named Drew Beamish, he becomes intensely curious about Drew's life and the influences that shaped him--from the eighteenth-century ancestor involved in a labor riot to the bleak beauty of the Cambridgeshire countryside in which he was raised. Patrick longs to know the story of this heart that is now his own.
In this intriguing and deeply absorbing story, Jill Dawson weaves together the lives and loves of three vibrant characters connected by fate to explore questions of life after death, the nature of the soul, the unseen forces that connect us, and the symbolic power of the heart.

I received an advanced readers copy from Harper Perennial via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
I have to be honest as much as I hate it. I tried, I really tried to like this book. Page after page I searched for something to hang on to. Something that would peak my interest and give me something positive to discuss. I just couldn't find it. The characters weren't likeable and the plot was dull and all over the map. In fact, I found it difficult and painful to get through. 256 pages is a short book in my opinion and it took me over a week to finish it. It just wasn't for me but I do encourage others to form their own opinions. Maybe I was just having a bad week??
